Argenis Mendez, Joan Guzman showcased tonight

IBF #6 rated super featherweight Argenis Mendez (18-2, 9 KOs) returns to action tonight in his native country of the Dominican Republic. It will be Mendez’ first fight since a controversial decision loss to Juan Carlos Salgado for the IBF super featherweight championship. Mendez had hoped to immediately secure a rematch against Salgado, but rather than wait around for the fight to possibly materialize, he will look to take things into his own hands and work his way back toward another title shot, beginning with his bout tonight against Jose Palma (14-4-2, 9 KOs). The bout, scheduled for 10 rounds, will take place at the Hotel Jaragua, in Santo Domingo. Headlining the card, which will be aired by ESPN Deportes, will be former world champion Joan Guzman taking on Florencio Castellano for the vacant IBF Caribbean welterweight title.

Dereck Chisora says he’s primed to upset Robert Helinius

“I’m surprised Helenius’ people wanted me to fight their unbeaten golden boy, they must be going on my performance in my last fight and think I’m easy pickings,” said heavyweight Dereck Chisora who will face Robert Helenius for the European heavyweight title at the Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland, on December 3rd.

“Believe me, this is the biggest mistake they have made with his career and I’ll be going over to Finland to knock him clean out. He’s called the Nordic Nightmare, but he’ll be having nightmares about me for the rest of his life after I’ve left him flat out on the canvas. I’ll be fit and ready for this fight like never before, it’s the big fight I need to really get my juices flowing and performing like I know I can. I can’t wait for December 3 and winning that European title and bringing it back to Britain.”

He had to worry about making weight, not strategy, and as far as having the opportunity to study his opponent, that was not a luxury he possessed . . .

Undefeated WBC middleweight champion and the Son of the Legend, Julio César Chávez, Jr. (43-0-1, 30 KOs), of Culiacan, México, and WBC #4 contender “The Pride of Providence” Peter Manfredo, Jr. (37-6, 20 KOs), of Providence, RI, and Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum host the final news conference on Thursday at Dave & Buster’s in Houston, Texas. Chávez Jr., the newly-minted world champion, will be making his first title defense, against Manfredo Jr. on Saturday at Reliant Arena.

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr: I hope on Saturday to give you a great, great fight. I expect a very tough fight. Manfredo has a lot of experience and is a real tough guy. I’m taking this fight real seriously. I’m working real hard, I’m not leaving anything in the ring. I’m giving it all and I want to show every one what I’m capable of.

Peter Manfredo Jr: My father was a tough fighter, but he was no Chavez Sr, that’s for sure. I had to work my way up through the ranks. I couldn’t get to where I am with my name or anything like that. I had to work up to this level. But I’m ready. Like I said, I trained very hard out of respect for you (shakes Chavez’s hand). I know it’s going to be a tough fight and I’m ready….he doesn’t stop coming forward and if you look at my nose and my face you know I don’t miss many shots. You’re gonna see a great fight. You’re going to see someone that wants to win a title and someone that doesn’t want to lose his title and that’s just gonna make for a great fight. Hopefully you’ll get a fight of the year. Hopefully you’ll get something like a Ward-Gatti where we can make millions of dollars doing a trilogy. Click here for more photos…

Salgado-Saucedo IBF super featherweight clash off; Saucedo irate

The recently announced IBF super featherweight bout between world champion Juan Carlos Salgado and world ranked challenger Fernando David Saucedo is now off. No official word on why but Saucedo certainly didnt take kindly to hearing the news and made the following statement:

“I totally feel disrespected. I believed in the word of the promoter of Salgado and had began training in preparation for this fight. Then I receive the news that they are looking for another opponent. I want to thank the IBF for this opportunity but because of Salgado and his team I’m missing out on this world title fight. It’s obvious that Salgado is scared to fight me. He must have seen videos of me fighting and new I would take his world title from him in his country of Mexico.”

It’s also been reported that Salgado’s team never sent over contracts to Saucedo and are not answering their phone calls. Stay tuned…

Arum, Sulaiman trade barbs over Pacquiao-Marquez

Before Saturday’s welterweight championship fight between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez, WBC President Jose Sulaiman said he saw little chance of Marquez winning the fight, which was for the belt of the rival WBO sanctioning body, and stated it would be “a miracle” if Marquez is victorious. After Marquez nearly pulled off the upset, Arum referred to Sulaiman as an “asshole” at the post-fight press conference.

In a press release issued today, Sulaiman issued the following statement:

Promoter Arum insulted me in the press with a swear that I wouldn’t dare to type out for respect specially to ladies. I think of Bob Arum is one of the greatest Promoters that my eyes have seen, but also that he has no class, has no idea of what a gentleman is, and if he would be subjected to an open heart surgery, the doctors would find no heart. I have tried all my life to be his friend, and have always supported him specially at his rough times, but unfortunately, he does not know either the meaning of that word. He just can’t help it.
